kodibuntu/linux: PVR IPTV Simple Client 2, 3, or more - mxlance - 2015-10-13

this is a how to mod and add multiple IPTV Simple Clients in kodibuntu.
i am new to linux and this may work for other installs as well.
there my be a better way but i could not find one. maybe this will give someone who knows more than i do some inspration.

step 1 go to:
usr/share/kodi/addons/pvr.iptvsimple
copy this folder to your desktop

step 1b go to:
usr/lib/*/addons/pvr.iptvsimple
copy the contents of this folder into the pvr.iptvsimple folder on your desktop.

step 2:

open the add-on.xml file

change the top of the file to this
id="pvr.iptvsimple2"
version="1.11.5"
name="PVR IPTV Simple Client2"
provider-name="nightik">
save and close the file

step 3:
change the name of the pvr.iptvsimple folder on your desktop to pvr.iptvsimple2
move this folder into the kodi user folder

Why not just combine your playlists?


RE: kodibuntu/linux: PVR IPTV Simple Client 2, 3, or more - mxlance - 2015-10-14

i have two sources one being my OTA from the fantastic eyetv IPTV. the second from an IPTV list i am giving a go.
is there a better way to do this?

thank you

Like I said you can just combine the various playlists you have into one file.


RE: kodibuntu/linux: PVR IPTV Simple Client 2, 3, or more - mxlance - 2015-10-14

interesting

i am not sure how to do that,
the eyetv iptv uses a local address for example: (http://192.168.1.20:9898/playlist.m3u8)

the list is a .m3u file with listings as follows:
#EXTINF:0,[COLOR blue]Weather Channel US[/COLOR]
http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/p/931702/sp/93170200/playManifest/entryId/1_oorxcge2/format/applehttp/protocol/http/uiConfId/28428751/a.m3u8

do i just add the eyetv iptv address into the list file?

is it that easy?

thanks for the help with this.

Pretty much, yes.


RE: kodibuntu/linux: PVR IPTV Simple Client 2, 3, or more - negge - 2015-10-14

Or no, I guess you have to download that .m3u8 file and add the individual items from it to your main playlist file.


RE: kodibuntu/linux: PVR IPTV Simple Client 2, 3, or more - mxlance - 2015-10-14

thank you
i do not know if or how that can be done.
i will ask in the eyetv iptv thread.
for now this is working.

thanks again
